Rhythm bones and information about rhythm bones used for music can be found here for your review. Second to that of the human voice, "rhythm bones" are the oldest instruments known to man throughout the anatomy of music and vibration. 2.5 million years ago, rhythm bones, stones and wood, then used as tools, were also one of our first forms of musical instruments. Idiophones are instruments that produce sound, and music, from the substance of the instrument itself. Some Irish rhythm bones are made from ribs of a goat or sheep. Similar styles of playing music using rhythm bones, wood and even stone are found all over the world stretching from South India to Mongolia, to the six Celtic regions of Ireland, Scotland, Wales, England, Bretagne, France and Asturias, Spain. To hold and play the rhythm bones, two rhythm bones are cradled in one hand and balanced vertically while the forearm and hand produce a rotating and waving motion, allowing the rhythm bones to pendulum and strike each other producing sound.
